Last week Premier Peter Gutwein announced Tasmania would ease Stage 3 restrictions two weeks ahead of schedule, advancing us further on our recovery pathway.

As we implement these gradual changes in stages, it is imperative we don’t undo the good work that has been done and suffer a second wave of infections.

The Premier also set a date to relax border controls on 24 July, subject to Public Health advice, with a review to focus particularly on the situation occurring in Victoria ahead of this date.  I encourage you to keep up to date with information as this situation remains continually changing. Below are some important links where you can access relevant, up to date information.

With restrictions easing, I encourage all Tasmanians, where they can, to get out and explore our magnificent State and support our local business and tourism operators.   

Through the Roadmap to Recovery, following Our Plan to Rebuild a Stronger Tasmania and with your continued support, let's safely build a stronger Tasmania.
